hello everyone,
there are 4 more shows that i'm involved with in october - tonight through sunday - & then a little break until november. here goes... 

tonight! i'm very excited to finally get to see antonio roman-alcala's film, in search of good FOOD, documenting and interviewing a variety of players in CA's sustainable food system. (features some music from slow motion cowboys!) ALSO, it's a benefit for the non-profit i've worked at for 7 years, earthshare california. we raise $ for over 80 environmental non-profits, covering a spectrum of issues & topics - clean air & water, healthy sustainable food, land conservation, care of the great sea, mountain lions, desert tortoises, and beyond. it's at el rio in the outer mission, and is gonna be a really fun night. pocket full of rye is playing music after the film, then there will be a few more local films. networking happy hour 6-8 to start the night. would mean a lot to see you there!

Tuesday Oct. 18th --> In Search of Good Food Film & Benefit show for EarthShare CA (where I work!) at El Rio, with live music by Pocket Full of Rye. Songbird Fest Presents!

then, this weekend, i'll be living at amnesia apparently. friday is the long-awaited beehavers' cd release. and to add to the glory, they are releasing not one but two cd's. what?!!! gypsy voodoo folk-rock-n-roll at it's finest. arborea from maine are opening. i've heard some of their songs and am in awe and intrigued. beautiful. magic leaves are closing off the night with some psych-folk-rock joy for our souls. can't wait. unmissable. this show is worth changing all your plans to attend.

sunday!!! super sweet show w/ new music (for me) ~ the show was built around rock falls, who are on tour. singer/songwriter annie reese has such an incredible voice ~ can't get enough of the songs i've heard already. "hushed & haunting" joseph childress will end the night with his moving & powerful renditions of stories  ~waves of sound to move us along. opening the night is this band i've literally been listening to on repeat since two weeks ago, when i first heard of 'em. my new favorite band. assateague. they're local, don't play out much & are gracing us with their songs on this night. really important to arrive early & see 'em! doors at 8:30, show at 9. this is also a long-awaited collaboration w/ seaweedsway & arvel hernandez's collective project, endless nest.
